Well.. not only that - even in inside a spacecraft we are susceptible to deadly cosmic rays and can't stay very long out there beyond the protection of Earth's magnetic field,, which is why I mentioned using machines to retrieve them.

> I wonder if it would possible to send some machines to the asteroid belt to capture some whole asteroids and bring them to Earth? Or would they be drifting too quickly in their orbits to capture with the current technology? Also would decent-sized samples from such captures be available to collectors?
